Killed – Jermaine Davis (Berkeley, CA)

Jermaine Davis

BERKELEY — A Berkeley man was shot and killed Wednesday night — less than a week after the men who murdered his brother four years ago were sentenced to life in prison, his family said Thursday.

Berkeley High School graduate Jermaine Davis, 26, was found shot in the 1800 block of Derby Street at 6:52 p.m. Wednesday, then later died at a hospital. His older brother, Charles “CJ” Davis, was shot and killed in May 2009 — a killing that prosecutors said may have taken place when gang members seeking to kill Jermaine targeted his brother instead.

Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley alleged that reputed gang member Darnell Williams, a 22-year-old Oakland man, fired multiple shots into an apartment in the 3400 block of Wilson Street at about 11:15 p.m. on July 17 in retaliation for the shooting death of 26-year-old Jermaine Davis in the 1800 block of Derby Street in Berkeley about four hours earlier, at 6:52 p.m.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Jean Kratz (Deming, NM)

Jean Kratz

DEMING – Deming Police officials are investigating what appears to be a murder/suicide that occurred Wednesday afternoon at 1820 S. Saddler.

Det. Sgt. Clint Hogan said Robert Kratz, age 64, was found sitting in the living room with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was found with a .38-caliber handgun in his lap.

His wife of 43 years, Jean Kratz, age 62, was found dead in bed with at least one gunshot wound to the side of her head.

Captain Bobby Orosco said officers were sent to the residence at about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday after dispatchers received a 911 call about an unattended death.

It appears the 911 call was made by Robert Kratz, reporting that his wife was dead.

Kratz must have immediately turned the gun on himself, because Hogan, Officer Richard Gallosa and emergency medical responders who arrived within minutes of the 911 call found him alive but suffering from a gunshot wound.Orosco said Robert Kratz was transported to the hospital by ambulance but died in the emergency room.

Hogan said no note was found.

Double Shooting – Killed – Chris Weary (Riviera Beach, FL)

Chris Weary

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. —A West Palm Beach man shot his father in the hand and shot another man to death during a drug deal at a Riviera Beach motel last summer, police said.

Riviera Beach police spokeswoman Rose Anne Brown said Correy Williams, 31, was taken into custody Thursday in West Palm Beach.

Williams faces charges of first-degree murder, armed robbery and tampering with a witness.

Detectives said Williams was the triggerman in a double shooting in the parking lot at the Travelodge motel on Blue Heron Boulevard in July.

According to the probable cause affidavit, the victim, Chris Weary, 44, was going to sell Williams pills and paid the suspect’s father $100 to supervise the transaction.

Williams entered the victim’s car and pulled out a gun, first shooting his father, Darrell Williams, in the hand, the report said.

The suspect’s father ran from the car and heard more gunshots, according to the report.

Police found Weary dead inside his car, which had crashed inside the motel’s swimming pool area.

Darrell Williams was initially reluctant to implicate his son in the shooting, detectives said. He told police his son threatened to kill him and his wife if they cooperated with the investigation, displaying a handgun at one point, the report stated.

Chris Weary was found dead around noon in a white Pontiac on the south side of the Travelodge property in the 3600 block of Blue Heron, just east of Interstate 95, police said.
